I found this article about intimate weddings last month and loved it – so much, that I wanted to share with you all on the English Wedding Blog. Lots of you will know I’d go for an intimate wedding like a shot – an elopement if I could! – and I’m a huge believer in keeping weddings small, cosy and magical. Those three go hand in hand.

Linda Grace Weddings knows what she’s talking about. She’s trained with the UKAWP and now specialises in intimate weddings across Somerset and Devon. Linda makes intimate weddings sound like the best thing ever… and I’m with her all the way! Here are 9 of Linda’s top reasons for choosing an intimate wedding – I agree with Every. Single. One. Do you?

“There are many reasons why couples decide they would love an intimate wedding.  The style can take various forms – from destination weddings, to quirky themed events, or purely a smaller gathering of around 50 guests or far fewer.  One size doesn’t fit all of course, but there’s an intimate solution to fit all couples’ ideas and budgets.

Hello everyone! Today is all about David and Steph, whose wedding breaks a few of the old-fashioned rules about all the things you ‘have to have’ for your wedding day. This fantastic couple chose one wedding supplier (only!), used kids’ invitations, didn’t have readings, and created an elegant wedding without spending a fortune. I love everything about their intimate wedding in Manchester and can’t wait to share it with you today!
